Find the job you will love



A lot of people are fixated on the idea of finding a perfect job. Sorry to break the news to you - there is no such thing as a perfect job. A job is a job; if it were perfect you wouldn’t think of it as a job. So, how do you find a job you’ll love?

 

It’s rare we think of work or potential work as something that we aspire to do as though we cannot wait to get out of bed in the morning and rush down to the office to begin our glorious day. A job merely has become a series of tasks we are willing to complete to receive a pay check. If it’s not true for you, you are one of the few lucky people on this planet. Unfortunately, this is true in many people’s work lives. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

 

1.  Stop trying so hard to find a dream job. If such thing existed, you would have probably figured out a way to get it by now. You haven’t, so let it go. Instead, make a list of all the things you enjoy doing (not for money). Things you’d do even if you had all the money in the world.  Things that make your heart sing. Things that instantly make the world a better place when you’re engaged in doing them.

2. Look at those activities you enjoy doing and see if you can do them in a way that includes other people. Spend all your free time (time away from home, kids, house responsibilities and so on) doing activities you love with other people who love doing the same activities.

 

“How in the world is it possible to get a job I will love?” you might ask. Here is your answer.

 

-  When you start spending your time doing what you love, you start building a variety of skills. When you spend time doing things you love with other people who love doing the same things, you instantly become a part of a broader network. People around you will see the results you’re producing and the progression of your achievements.   I promise you the results will surprise you because they will come from pure joy and enthusiasm (your heart!).

-  Nobody wants to hire desperate people. It doesn’t matter if you have been a perfectionist working hard all your life to have an opportunity to interview for, as you see it, a dream job or you were recently laid off and desperately need new employment. Desperate is desperate. Desperate is not attractive. People like to work with people who are energized and passionate about what they do. You know why? Because they love what they do.

-  A job you’ll love will come from being engaged in the world and from building human connections.

-  When you are passionately engaged in doing what you love (even if it’s not bringing you income right now) the chances are high this will spin you toward opportunities you just didn’t see existed because you were so fixated on finding a “perfect” job.  The job you’ll find will be more aligned with who you are and what you love doing.

 

If you’re not convinced, here is more:  Don’t waste time. You already wasted seven months looking for that “perfect” opportunity and haven’t found it yet. Start doing what you love, even if you feel stupid about it. Who cares?! You will learn new skills.  You will meet new people who will witness you in your natural, most excited, most powerful state. Use and develop your strengths at things you excel and love. And let the work you will love find you.

 

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

~ Steve Jobs
